December 10, 2013 -- Fourth-graders in Brian Donohue’s class brought their own sense of “Seuss style” to the North Country Festival of Trees held at the Queensbury Hotel last weekend.

“The students made a Grinch Tree for our donation to the festival, which helps fund Prospect Family and Child Center,” said Mr. Donohue.

Ornaments featured the classic bright-green color of Dr. Seuss’ "Grinch Who Stole Christmas" character, and incorporated the students’ handprints.

Parent volunteers Gina Nassivera and Patricia Vanderpool helped coordinate the project.
